Essie Turquoise & Caicos swatches

Hi, I can't believe it's been this long! So much uni work is the project is due on monday which is probably why I'm finally posting; major procrastination ;). I actually took these photos 5 days ago, tut tut.

Anyway, the polish in question is the perfect turquoise; Essie Turquoise and Caicos. My experience was much the same as other reviews - thin, streaky formula but it's worth it, the colour is just so happy! I think I did 3 coats as I had quite a few bold patches after the second.
I decided to do an accent of Barry M Limited edition christmas gold thing, as I think turquoise and gold is the best combo yo.
A nice bit of handcream there on my pinky ;)
The ring on my index is from catbird nyc (they deliver internationally), I'm always getting asked where it's from, I neeeeeeeeeed another especially the opal drop! So cute!

In the bottle I don't think T&C looks like anything special but once it's on the nail it looks so good (IMO). I did do some nail art over the top but everyone seemed underwhelmed by it so I didn't bother taking pictures, I liked it, it was simple patterns but no one else felt the same so I just took it off. That's the problem I'm facing at the moment, people are expecting really complex/exciting nail art and when I don't do that they aren't bothered lol I'm taking about people who know me irl/facebook page. Ahh I hate to say it but it's a total firstworldproblem.......trivial.

I know I've been awful at posting since like october, ie since I started my second year, but I've also been slacking at reading and commenting on other blogs so I'm sorry, I'll try to catch up!
I suppose I should do some work now but I can't stop listening to Eminem, you can't work and listen to him, he deserves your full attention haha darn it I love him so much! Hehehe :) see you soon I hope!

Aw I would have liked to see your simple design nail art. ;) S'okay, though, this looks great as-is, too. Love turquoise and gold! Glad to see you back!! :D I missed you.

Haha I know I was for a while but then when I saw it in the US I had to get it :P I'd love Where's my Chauffer though!

5 days huh? I must be really bad though...I have manis that are weeks old before I post them lol! Well I think this color is great...I've been debating on whether to get it because I have CG For Audrey, Essie Mint Candy Apple, and Ciate Pepperminty...all of which I'm not sure how this compares to them!! I'm trying to find different mint shades though.

haha ^^ I see that lacquer-maniacs all over the world have similar problems with choosing polishes :P
I couldn't decide between Mint Candy Apple and Where's My Chauffer so... I landed up with two bottles :P
